    I have three broody hens that have been broody for weeks! No eggs coming from them.....[​IMG] I need their eggs to sell! Grrrrrrrr. I suspected that my RIR was going to go broody. Their names: RIR Pumpin' Pie, NHR Maggie and last BR Precious or known as fatso [​IMG]. What to do, what to do???? When I kick them out of their nests, they try to brood the floor [​IMG]. No hatchings for them! I already have too many chicks! [​IMG]

    I sympathize with your plight [​IMG]. I have 47 hens and 8 are currently broody. I used to get 3.5 doz back when I had ZERO broodies, now the daily bag is more like 2.5 on a good day.
